I read alot of negative responses in the forum to a point where one wonder why some are actually playing eve Laughing For my part I think it's a really good game, richly detailed and fun to play and I want to send a big cheers to the CSM and CCP.Cool

You said it yourself.. if people didn't really love this game, why would it make them so mad?

Actually it's because people love this game so much, they get so mad. You don't
hear anything from the people who doesn't care.

Many, or at least a lot of the people who write in the forums feels ccp have lost touch with the playerbase, that they dont play the game themselves anymore. One thing that makes this very evident is the new turret icons that are Fubar. then theres the lack of communications from ccp, the MT, the forced CQ, the mail from Hilmar, the Fearless intern ccp magazine, plus a number more.

I am, which you have probaby figured out now, one of those that love eve, and it breaks my heart when ccp is seemingly down prioritizing work on eve to focus on DUST 514 and WoD.

But you are right, apart from the above, eve is a good game, it is fun. thank you ccp. but csm? atm, i don't know who they are working for

Forever - A Future Vision World Debut Trailer (2011) | FULL-HD

CCP's Eve - A Future Vision 1080p

For me if CCP is pushing for their game console and these players can interact with the players from EVE this will be exciting so it worth the patience to wait for next coming of DUST514 and Incarna is a step ahead in this direction.

Why do people like me play EVE when we have things that we are not happy about? Simple, I've invested over five years playing EVE and when people have a stake in anything then I think thay have a right to be critical when things appear to be changing in ways that adversely affect the game. Just because you love someone or something does not make you blind to faults. EVE is not what it was when I started playing, some things are better i.e. PI, invention rather than the lottery. Others are not, lag, general performance and at the moment CQ.

What exactly is not correct with CQ? The devs said at first with CQ we would not do much more then walk around the captain quarters and that is what CQ has been released. I am shure there is much more exciting features to be released in the future that will make us forget Incarna limitations.

As of lag, it's pretty amazing to consider that eve server is in the top 500 servers in the world and this for a video game. Every patch CCP works on lag issues but devs have also suggested to players to add ram to their machines to reduce client side lag. So complaining about lag when you have a pentium 3 with 2 gigs of rams doesent make any sense.Cool

I think the point is CQ should have been left out of this expansion and introduced with the whole station walking thang when ready. CQ is utterly pointless as you cant do anything of worth atm. So while you are correct in saying CQ is as CQ was promised, do you honestly believe it was worth releasing in it's severely limited state? Then there's the fact that CQ [email protected] just about everything that was so easy in the hanger.

As for lag... not everyone is going to have the land required to keep 2 gigs of rams let alone the sheep dogs needed to keep them under control.

I did love eve for 2 years but the ***** cheated on me so i dumped her. 11pm tomorrow my last account expires and i'm not going to miss it one bit. What's happening now is naff, and what's likely to happen is even worse.

Have fun.

Well, since you ask I actually have an Athlon 64 dual core with 4 GB ram.

I was speaking from a personal perspective when I said things had changed. When I first started playing EVE I had about the same experience as everyone else as far as performance went, since then I have upgraded my main box to the spec. above but, like a lot of other applications, the devs seem to have been more interested in adding new features and thus expanding the code base rather than optimising performance. Now I'm more or less forced to run the graphics on my machine at minimum levels of detail just so the game stays playable. I know that this is partly my fault for running under Linux and that there are things I can do to increase performance but money is tight just now and I would have expected that with the setup I do have things should be better than they are.

For me CQ is unusable as it runs so slowly, as I say that is partly due to the decision I made regarding choice of OS, but to insist on everyone using it is unfortunate. I would like to have the choice to go back to ship spinning. Something I hear may be reintroduced, so that may, in time solve that problem. The other thing is, to me, the perceived lag in the client. Stations, jump gates and distance updates etc.seem to be very slow and sometimes do not appear at all. Now I know that this may be due to my setup and/or the pathetic broadband I have, but I can only speak about what I see. That is not to say that things have not changed for the better, they most defintely have. The playing experience is richer, has a better introduction to the game, there are more things to do and explore and so on. All in all a game I would be loath to stop playing. But just because things are mostly going in the right direction does not mean to say that you should not speak out when you think things could be improved. After all that's why mass tests are run from time to time but having the full user base looking at things should always bring to light areas of the game that could usefully be tweaked.

- The devs having announced to make it non-optional in the future.

I have a decent rig (quad core intel cpu @3ghz, geforce gtx 570, 8 gigs of ram), but CQ eats my system ressources like nothing and makes my GPU fan howl.
Yes - I can run 2 clients @1920*1200, but after returning from work, I usually fire up 2 clients in windowed mode, have them minimized for most of the time like browser windows and occasionally check if anything interesting is going on, whilst playing other games/browsing the web/doing some work.
I certainly don't want to be forced to have those 2 minimized windows consume a large part of my system ressources and generating lots of heat in the future, just because CCP Flyingscotsman considers CQ to be 'one with the rest of eve'. FW, WHs, PI and Incursions are one with the rest of eve too, yet I'm not forced to do any of it. The same should apply to Invarna.

Besides, going through the nasty process of having all plugs pulled from my body and cleaning all of the pod-goo whenever I quickly unload some ore is immersion breaking from a lore POV.

They can add features all they want, I still wont be interested in incarna - because guess what: If I'd be interested in walking around and dressing up avatars I would have played second life for the last couple of years.
